    04 stage 2 vs. S2000

    I had an encounter last weekend with a S2000. He was waiting in the right lane at a red light when I approached, unfortunetly right as I rolled up the light went green. I slowly roll off the line and I hear him punch it. We stay almost neck and neck through 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, and then as soon as I hit 4th in the rex, he starts to roll by me slowly, gets about a car and a half on me and hits his blinkers.

    It was sad to go down, made really wish i could get a rematch from a full stop...

    the s2000 was modded and had at least an exhaust.

    Sorry to hear about the loss but thats the sad thing about RWD and AWD with similar powerbands, RWD does a bit better in the higher speeds

    Hopefully you can find him again and go from a stop showing him what AWD is all about

    Ehh...

    I have an S2k, and I can say this... An exhaust does next to nothing for an NA S2k. If the S was FI, it would have cooked you more.

    Isnt "S" FI...you are still forcing air into the induction.

    Nope an "S" in stock form does not have anything mechanical that forces air in, the engine just draws air in. Nothing is forced.

    I thought you ment S as in superchaged and FI as in turbo. My fault.

    yah, find his ass and race him from a dig.. you should jump a car car length or two and hold it from him. Then by the end of 3rd throw your blinkers on and put the brake lights on => and stop racing before he can play catch up lol.
